How We Pay Contributors

ZERO READERS is glad to now be a paying market and is able to do so through contributions provided by readers and other supporters.  You can pitch in by:


For the sake of transparency, here’s how we’re endeavoring to pay our contributors as fairly as possible:

  • From the date we open submissions until issue publication day, any funds raised using the above methods will get pooled together and split evenly among contributors.
  • Upon publication, we’ll provide information about how much we were able to raise during the issue’s production period and make that available for all donors, contributors, and ZR subscribers.This isn’t so complicated that we actually need a third bulletpoint, but here we are.

If you’ve got any questions, concerns, or would like to help Zero Readers or Pencilhouse in any way, please reach out to
